Speculoos Spread Made With Speculaas Cookies

The real reason I made speculaas biscuits is I wanted to make speculoos spread. I have never tasted the ‘real deal’ but I can tell you this tastes amazing. Perfect just for dipping a spoon into the jar and eating it plain.

Head straight on to the recipe for Speculoos Spread ♥

A friend recently posted a question on FaceBook asking for the best seats for a single traveller. One of the people she asked for assistance was me. I read all the different opinions before replying. Most were given by people who travel as a couple. I for one know that my travel choices are completely different when I fly with Dave. When we fly together we prefer a duo seat. We pay extra for this when we book, ensuring we get the actual seats we prefer. On the Boing 777-300ER we choose the first set of two seats right behind a row of three. That gives Dave slightly more leg room when he sits on the aisle seat. For landing and take-off he prefers the window. But I sleep on a flight and he doesn’t, so we swap seats at bed time.

As I sleep on my right hand side we choose seats on the right of the plane. If we are lucky enough to fly on the Airbus A380 we choose to sit upstairs in row 89. Some planes do not have the duo seat option and if so, we choose the first row of 3 in the middle so that we do not disturb anyone when we get up from our seats. With this option we also will not be disturbed. If I am travelling alone I try and get the window seat in the emergency exit row. I don’t make use of the television screen so the fact that it is in the seat itself and not in front of me makes no difference. The extra leg room means that I can get up and move around when I choose to. I have only on one occasion had someone so tall next to me I have had to climb over their legs. If this seat is not an option I choose the middle row, aisle seat in the hope a family flies next to me and will let me sleep.

I am passionate about using regional, seasonable and sustainable produce when I cook. I live in Gordons Bay with my husband and dogs. Dave and I are busy building a house which is an adventure all in itself. Each year we visit a new place overseas to experience the food of the area. Follow along on our adventures!
